Verizon, AT&T to offer 4G LTE iPad 3

There’s been an absolute flood of iPad 3 rumors over the past few months, and there’s no signs of it slowing down. The latest rumor has it that Verizon and AT&T will both be offering a 4G LTE-enabled iPad 3.

The news comes from Wall Street Journal, citing “sources familiar with the matter.” Additionally, WSJ’s report backed up recent rumors that Apple was gearing up to reveal the iPad the during the first week of March.

WSJ reports:

Verizon Communications Inc. and AT&T Inc. will sell a version of the coming iPad that runs on their newest fourth-generation wireless networks, according to people familiar with the matter, as the battle to cash in on big investments in mobile broadband heats up.

Verizon and AT&T both currently carry the iPad 2, but the tablet uses the carriers’ 3G networks. In the case of the iPad 2, both carriers offer a month-to-month, contract-free data plan, but it isn’t known at the moment if the same will apply to the 4G iPad 3 model.

At the moment, it isn’t clear of Sprint and T-Mobile will be offering a 4G LTE iPad 3. WSJ reached out to the companies for comment, but all of them, including Apple, declined.

Are you looking forward to the big reveal of the iPad 3?
